Messner and his younger brother completed an audacious summit bid,but tragically Gunther perished in an avalanche during the treacherous descent.This well written book takes us through Messners amazing fight for survival in the harshest of environments,the starvation the hallucinations and the unbelievable hospitality of the local people.Messner gives an insightful account into his own Himalayan tragedy,the deep chasm of hurt left by the death of his brother and the sense of injustice following the release of the official expedition statement.
This book gives us a glimpse into the world of a mountaineering legend,what drives him, his torment and ambition.The photography is breathtaking and contributes to the story in no small part.Definitely one for the avid armchair adventurer.
